Live Game Updates: A's at Yankees - 4/19

7:29 p.m., End First: #RISPSuccess. A-Rod drives in Carlos Beltran with a two-out RBI single to left, and the Yankees have a 1-0 lead after the opening frame.

7:42 p.m., Mid 2nd: Pineda gives it right back in the second. Marcus Semien's RBI single evens the score at one.

7:50 p.m., End 2nd: Nothing doing for the Yankees in a 1-2-3 bottom of the second.

8:07 p.m., End 3rd: Lead-off double for Brett Gardner gets wasted in the third. The Yankees' situational hitting struggles continue.

8:13 p.m., Mid 4th: Pineda looks sharp in a clean top of the fourth. He's at 58 pitches so far.

8:22 p.m., End 4th: A-Rod bloops his second single of the night to center, but Eric Surkamp retires the next three. Still tied after four.

8:30 p.m., Mid 5th: Big strikeout of Chris Coghlan helps Pineda work around a one-out triple from Billy Burns in the fifth.

8:48 p.m., End 5th: Finally, the Yankees get another run. A walk to Gardner, a double by Castro, and a sac fly by Beltran give the Yankees a 2-1 edge after five. 

8:55 p.m., Mid 6th: Tough luck for Pineda and the Yankees. A Danny Valencia line drive goes off the tip of Gardner's glove for a triple, and Jed Lowrie ties it with a weak groundball single two batters later.

9:10 p.m., End 6th: Luck really isn't on the Yankees' side right now. Aaron Hicks and Brett Gardner both hit balls on the nose in the sixth, and both get robbed. Yanks end up stranding runners on second and third.

9:28 p.m., End 7th: Betances is coming on for the eighth. Still even at two.

9:39 p.m., Mid 8th: Betances yields a pair of singles in the eighth, but escapes with a strikeout of Khris Davis.

9:45 p.m., End 8th: Yankees offense looking lifeless out there. Ninth inning and Miller coming up, with the score still tied.

10:06 p.m., End 9th: Yankees' bats don't do anything again. Extra innings coming up.

10:20 p.m., End 10th: Another 1-2-3 inning for the Yanks. They've had just one baserunner since their last threat in the bottom of the sixth.

Final (11 Innings): A's 3, Yankees 2

Another helpless performance by the Yankees' bats cancelled out a strong start from Pineda and a dominant night for the bullpen. I guess Pineda's a bright spot here, but if this offense doesn't turn it around soon, no improvement he or any other pitcher on the roster makes will matter.
